Fund Milwaukee is a network of investors interested in investing in Milwaukee area businesses that embrace a triple bottom line – a concern for social, environmental, and economic impact within the local community. The investment process follows a few simple steps:

    1. Become a Fund Milwaukee member and submit the Fund Milwaukee Raising Funds: Submission Form.
    2. Submission Form is reviewed by Fund Milwaukee membership. Business opportunities that receive interest are invited to present at a Fund Milwaukee meeting, held monthly.
    3. If there is interest following the presentation, business creates a LocalStake profile to facilitate investments.
    4. Investments are completed via the LocalStake website.
